About Me

Hi! My name is Victoria. My amateur radio call sign is K8VSY.

I can also be found on QRZ as a Lifetime Member.


I got my Technician license on 2011-12-02 as KD8RHR, then upgraded to General in 2012. In August of 2020 I upgraded to Amateur Extra.

I am a member of the following organizations/clubs:

As of 2021-09-28, I am now a Volunteer Examineer through ARRL, and as of February 2022 I am a Volunteer Examineer through Laurel.

My interests: you’ll likely find me on HF. I love the lower frequencies! Also, I’ve recently discoverd DMR and I’m playing around with that.

My home station is a Yaesu FT-857D with the Super Antenna 80m version (MP1DXTR80). I primarily broadcast from within EM89.

I also have an ICOM ID-4100A and more recently I bought the AnyTone 878UVII Plus.
